Sheer is all the rage right now for spring and I’m totally loving it. The reason? It’s the perfect way to cover up a little while still showing some skin and also keeping cool in the warming weather. Harper’s Bazaar termed it “sheer glory” in their “Street Style Trend Report: Spring 2012” online article and if done right you’ll look nothing but glorious rocking your sheer numbers. Here are some of my fave picks and tips to help you get your spring sheer on.
Kaelen Sheer Tunic
This is such a great piece. Tunics are a great look for everyone, they’re super chic, and also super comfortable. This tunic is breezy and light, but allows you to play around with how it can be styled. If you’re looking to show less skin, try pairing a tight cami underneath – something bright would look killer – for a cute daytime look, or throw a blazer over top for night. As for bottoms, try it over pants, shorts, skirts – very versatile. And if you want to vamp it up a little bit, don’t layer – just rock a super great bra.
Zara Wide Printed Trousers
I am so madly in love with these pants – yes, my heart flutters a little bit when I see them. Sheer isn’t just safe for on top, you can rock it on the bottom as well, as evidenced by these amazing printed trousers. For me, it’s all about letting the pants speak for themselves, so try pairing these with a plain tee and some serious wedges. For night, pair these with a blazer to pull the look together and a pair of high pumps.
This is a great way to add sheer to your wardrobe in a subtle way. Trench coats are always a great investment, and this particular one with sheer sleeves is no exception! Try pairing with a cute pair of boyfriend jeans, a tee and flats for day or pair over a mini dress for night.
